When should I take my GPA off my resume?
Once you have 2-3 years of work experience, it is time to remove your GPA from your resume. At this point in life, your work experience speaks more to your skills than your old GPA. Let go of your past academic success, and use that extra space on your resume to provide an example of a more recent work accomplishment.
Does GPA really matter after college?
The importance of your GPA after college depends on your plans. If you want to go to graduate school or medical school, your GPA is going to matter, as admissions committees will look at your transcripts – much the same as for college admissions. Many graduate schools focus on GPA earned as a junior and senior.
What is the difference between overall GPA and major GPA?
Your major GPA, unlike your cumulative GPA, represents only the grades you received in the major you declared. For instance, if you are a biology major, your major GPA is based on the grades you got in all biology classes, and in other classes that are specific to your program of study.
